Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha

When Arthur Golden’s beautifully crafted novel Memoirs of a Geisha was published in 1997 it became an instant bestseller and something of a national phenomenon.  In its first four years on the market the novel was on The New York Times bestseller list for 58 weeks and sold over 4 million copies in English.  This was made all the more astounding given that the book was Golden’s first and, as of 2014, only published work.
